Some of Beijing’s most talented young musicians will come together this Friday, to make marvelous music and raise money for a good cause.
The concert will take place on Friday December 7 at Western Academy of Beijing (WAB), and will also feature performers from the International School of Beijing (ISB), Keystone Academy, and Dulwich College Beijing (DCB).
“Friday’s concert will be a typically eclectic affair featuring chamber ensembles, choirs, duets, solos, and dance,” said Mark Armstrong, Head of Department for Music and Art at WAB. “It is a chance to share their passions for a good cause, raising both awareness and money for the Roundabout Charity Group.”
ISB’s Mozart Ensemble will play chamber music ranging from Mozart to contemporary pieces such as Rob Grice’s thrilling Battle of the Ancient Dragons. Keystone also offer classic chamber works, including Pachelbel’s famous Canon, and an atmospheric piece for choir and guzheng. DCB contribute two songs for choir and the piano duet Fossils from The Carnival of the Animals, before WAB round off the evening with a performance from their High School Dance program.
The concert is free to attend, but there will be a collection at the end for Roundabout, and vendors will be in attendance, with proceeds going to the charity. If you can’t make this opportunity to see some of the city’s best young talent, then don’t despair; the next concert in the series will take place at DCB on May 2.
